Paisley Desert Preview

Here are the forage allocations for the Paisley Desert HMA, as presented in Table 1 of the Final EA for wild horse management actions therein.

Paisley Desert Grazing Data A-1

The HMA intersects four allotments and has a Herd Area Management Plan (HMAP).

Would you say it’s managed principally for wild horses?

The Saint Patricks allotment is 100% inside the HMA but livestock receive over 20 times more forage than horses on that parcel.

The EA said on page 27 that solar-powered wells were proposed for the HMA to provide water for the horses but over 700 of them were removed last month due to lack of water.
